Tiffany Littles, 33, of Jacksonville, Florida, has filed a lawsuit in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Inc., for severe and lasting injuries caused by the birth control drug Yaz.

The lawsuit says that Yaz is a dangerous prescription drug sold without adequate warnings about the risks of severe, lasting, and potentially fatal injuries. Littles stated in a news releases that she was “bringing this lawsuit so that this traumatic event does not happen to anyone else. I nearly died from taking this medication–the hospital even brought in a priest for me.”

Littles suffered “bilateral pulmonary emboli, cor pulmonale, and deep vein thrombosis (“DVT”), more commonly known as a blood clot. If left untreated, blood clots can break off and result in life-threatening conditions.”

The lawsuit claims that Littles would not have been injured if Bayer had properly warned consumers of the dangers of using the drug.

Littles attorney said that “[t]he FDA’s adverse event database for Yaz and Yasmin reveal a very high number of serious adverse events associated with these drugs, including strokes, heart attacks, blood clot formation, and sometimes death. Bayer failed to warn doctors and consumers, we allege, that Yaz and Yasmin pose a greater risk of serious injuries than earlier generation oral contraceptives.” disclaimer: This article: Florida Lawsuit Filed Against Yaz For Life-Threatening Blood Clot was posted on Thursday, August 25th, 2011 at 7:49 pm at and is filed under Defective Drug Lawsuits.
